Roybal Centers for Translational Research on Aging (P30 Clinical Trial Required)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits Edward R. Roybal Centers for Translation Research in the Behavioral and Social Sciences of Aging. The purpose of the Roybal Centers is to develop behavioral interventions that improve the health and well-being of people as they are aging and the capacity of institutions to adapt to societal aging. Roybal Centers will conduct Stage 0 through IV pilot studies in accordance with the multidirectional, translational NIH Stage Model, to produce potent and implementable principle-driven behavioral interventions. For the purposes of this FOA, Stage I studies and small-scale Stage 0, II, III, and IV studies will be referred to as "pilot" studies.  All applications must include Stage I studies, in which a principle-driven intervention and the intervention's associated materials are created, refined, adapted, and pilot tested for feasibility, acceptability and efficacy.
